Introduction to Playwriting, with Kira Rockwell
Have you ever wanted to try your hand at playwriting? Learn to write powerful dramatized scenes? Pick up where you left off? In this half-day workshop, writers will receive an introduction to the art and craft of playwriting, as well as learning a few playwriting tools that will strengthen any narrative. Generative writing exercises will give you the opportunity to experiment with theatrically, stage directions, and writing dialogue specifically for actors, all with a live performance in mind. The instructor will lead a light craft lesson, as well as a discussion about a short excerpt from a published play. As a fiction or narrative non-fiction writer, you’ll explore what playwriting has to teach you about creating riveting scenes. All experience levels are welcome.
